Future Aptitude Selection Tool (FAST)

FAST is designed to measure a candidates ability to manage a dynamic environment and tests a candidates' multitasking, learning, cognitive, situational awareness and physical skills

Symbiotics Ltd

Designed by our Psychologists, FAST takes around 15 minutes to complete and places the candidate in an ever-increasingly stressful situation to determine how well they can function as the number and intensity of overlapping tasks increase.

The test determines how well a candidate can prioritise tasks, manage multiple activities and learn from each flight scenario to improve their overall performance.

FAST can be used at all levels and is excellent at filtering a large number of candidates down to identify those with natural aptitude for ab-initio training.

Our Psychologists Comments

FAST is a complex tool that requires the test taker to deal with multiple information sources simultaneously, replicating the intense and demanding work environment experienced by pilots. Used as part of a range of assessments FAST can help you to identify candidates who are likely to be able to cope in those environments.
